PACO General Membership Meeting

We are working diligently to finalize preparations for PACO’s first General Membership Meeting of 2019. Be sure to watch for an announcement in next week’s “Message” for information about our guest speaker, date, and registration. We are waiting to confirm the date, which will be either January 22 or 29.

We understand the challenge and difficulty of getting away from the office, even for a lunch hour, to attend. Although there’s nothing like everyone gathering together “in person,” thanks to Anderson Reporting, you are not foreclosed from participating! We are pleased and greatly appreciative that Anderson Reporting provides livestream access which allows you to attend the meeting remotely from any location. This is a feature that few, if any, other paralegal associations are able to offer its members and we are very fortunate to be able to do so. Next week you will have the option to select remote access when you register.

Paralegal Day 2019

Now that 2019 has arrived, Paralegal Day will be here before you know it! Paralegal Day is observed each May, recognized by the State of Ohio. PACO invites you to join our annual Paralegal Day celebration on Monday, May 20, 2019. This year’s event will be held at The Reception House at Raymond Memorial Golf Course. PACO’s Public Relations Committee continues to plan and prepare for this special event, especially now that the new year is here. Be sure to watch for more details in the coming months!
